Ohio State QB Jack Miller announces transfer to Florida

The Florida Gators picked up a big transfer on Tuesday from a position of need for Billy Napier and his coaching staff.

Ohio State quarterback transfer Jack Miller announced he plans to transfer to Florida over options from Auburn and Oklahoma State among others.

“Excited to get to work! #GOGators,” Miller tweeted.

Miller competed for most of training camp in Columbus to be the starting quarterback before losing the job to CJ Stroud who had a solid year.

In limited duty Miller completed 7 of 14 passes attempted for 101 yards as he came in for mop duty, Miller comes to Florida as a redshirt freshman.

Coming out of high school Miller was one of the top quarterbacks out of Scottsdale, Arizona and is known as more of a pro-style quarterback.

With the addition of Miller, the Gators now have four quarterbacks on the roster heading into spring practice after quarterback Emory Jones announced his intention to enter the transfer portal.

Billy Napier and the coaching staff will also look to add a quarterback from the high school ranks during the February signing period after they did not sign one during the early signing period.

Napier and the staff are also not finished in the transfer portal as they’ve been busying offering several guys in the portal in recent days.
